Hi all, I am a 36 year old woman. I have had type 1 diabetes (well-controlled) since I was 10 and Hashimoto's since I was 15. I have always taken t4-only drugs (first synthroid, then Eutirox, 88mcg) this past week when I switched to NDT (Thiroyd from Thailand). I am adjusting - as I don't feel that great - some dizziness and fatigue. I took 1 grain split for five days then upped to 1.5 split three ways for the past two days. Planning to hold here for two weeks. But my blood sugars are through the roof! Is it normal for an NDT to raise one's insulin requirements? I always feel sick/off when my sugars are high do it is hard to get a reading on what the NDT is actually doing. Recent lab work showed normal tsh (1.25) and ft4 (midrange) but very low ft3 (below range). Thanks in advance.
